JimKen Nursery was started in 1972 from very humble beginnings. We started as a garden center in a home backyard with 50 1-gallon Azalea plants. Since that time our plant quality, selection and commitment to South Carolina and beyond has expanded significantly.
In the Summer of 2003 we launched our landscape contractor division. With our many years of retail and plant growing experience we viewed this as a natural progression resulting from our continuing efforts to satisfy our customers' ever evolving landscaping needs. Our landscape contractor connections insure the complete process from the initial landscape design to complete installation.
In the Spring of 2005, we moved our garden center from Lexington, SC to our growing facility in Gilbert, SC. JimKen Plant Outlet is an extension of our wholesale facility. Therefore, we are able to sell quality plants at incredible prices. This new innovation is a true drive-thru experience.
